Advertising budget for Obamacare to be cut 90 pct -U.S. health agency

WASHINGTON, Aug 31 (Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said on Thursday it plans to spend $10 million on advertising for the upcoming Obamacare open enrollment period that starts in November, a sharp cut from the $100 million spent last year.

The agency also said it will cut funding for so-called navigators, who help people enroll in Obamacare health insurance plans, by 41 percent to $36.8 million. (Reporting by Eric Beech; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
